Final Project Seminar in Documentary Studies (Online)
 

 

This seminar is organized around group discussions of student projects, including how best to complete those projects, along with guided planning on how best to present the works to their intended audiences. Certificate students who have met all other requirements and have done substantial work toward their intended final projects may request admission to the course. Participants who successfully complete their projects during this course will be awarded the Certificate in Documentary Arts.

Please contact CDS Courses (continuing education) interim director Rahi Hasan ([email protected]) if you plan to enroll. On Wednesday, June 3rd, students will share their work with a public audience at the Full Frame Theater at American Tobacco Campus. (12 hours / Advanced)
